So OK, I was dreaming of my big break in Hollywood, a la Harlow, and fine, its a dream. Not going to happen, at least in the sense that movie stars arent discovered in the same way any more. Remember, Jean was dropping someone else off for a shoot, got dared into doing an audition, and the rest, after a few years at least, was history. Just consider, she first auditioned in ’27, got her major break in ’29/’30, and only became a real star a couple of years later, so…even for her, it wasnt instant fame.
And lets face it, she was in her late teens, pretty, slim, and I’m in my 50’s, not a great looker, and not that slim, but…I’m doing an interview in Hollywood! No, not any of the big studios, not any of the big TV channels, but, you never know who sees these things! Maybe, just maybe, someone will be watching, think we’ve got something she could do, and…fame! Fine, probably not, but I can dream!
Story. On Twitter, a lady who I know as a contact there, Alexia, asked for people prepared to be interviewed about creative issues. Well, lets say transgender issues are pretty special to me, and LGBT as a whole as well, so I volunteered. Yes, it will be interesting, and an introduction to the way of these things, but its an online way of getting noticed out there in LA at least. I have no idea how many watch these online offerings, but I can hope, just that one chance, and…At worst, I get chance to talk for 30 minutes or so, on a subject close to my heart!
In all honesty, that will probably be it. My 30 minutes of fame in this life, and that will be it. Of course, it gives me the chance to raise transgender issues for all, including myself, so…it will be doing good for all.
Oh fine, the where, the when. For me, Studio City, not far from Hollywood, for you, online at https://sqeeqee.com/profile/info/1089462 The when, 7th October, at 11.30 am PDT, work out your own time from there. It will be archived, so you can watch it later, but it will be live streamed then!
The video. What I might like to dream I’ll become, and who knows, but I suspect not?
